This is a Mountain Laurel stick I carved from our property. The crook was a bit short so I added some Elk antler with Purple heart and a lighter scrap bolster. Joined with epoxy and an Oak dowel. The thumb rest is an Elk Ivory from an Elk I harvested years ago. Also doweled to the cane and epoxied in place. This stick fit’s me well and is fast becoming one of my favorite ones to use. 36”

I would be proud to take that stick for a walk. Like the addition of the Elk Antler and the face carving… Nice work Doug!

Great cane!

The bicycle in the background seems to need a little TLC though.

Beautiful! I like making canes from the naturally shaped branches of local trees they just seem more comfortable to use tan the steam bent or carved ones. Thanks for sharing.
